July 6, 2004 -- EXCLUSIVE
John Kerry has chosen Rep. Richard Gephardt, the veteran congressman from Missouri, to be his running mate, The Post has learned.
Gephardt, 63, a 28-year veteran of the House of Representatives, could be named by the presumptive Democratic nominee as the party's vice-presidential candidate as soon as today.
The Massachusetts senator was set to announce the winner of the veep-stakes at a rally this morning in Pittsburgh, according to several reports last night.
With the July 26 Democratic convention in Boston looming, Kerry is looking for some advantage in the polls, and is hoping his choice of running mate will be the answer.

Well, at least it's not Hillary.
What a lame duck.
I'll wait until the announcement. I just heard that they're repainting the plane with John Edwards name on it. Whom to believe, but who cares?
Gee, d'ya think Kerry will be overshadowed by his radiant charisma? ;-)
Oh goody, goody! I was hoping it would be Gephardt.
We can use the phrase: Dull and Duller
If true, it's proof positive that Kerry will be owned lock, stock, and barrel, by organized labor.
he doesnt want to win does he?
I heard earlier that Kerry's campaign plane was having Edwards name added...
B-8, no, no, make that G-51, uh, nope, wait, O-63, ah, no, uh, er, N-42!
I thought it could only be Hitlery or Gephardt. I just could not see Hitlery allowing Edwards to get a leg up on her for 2008 nor allowing Vilsack or any else to become another rising Dim star to compete with her in 2008.
Gephardt is fine with her, I am sure. He won't help the ticket win. He will not be a factor in 2008.
I hope this is true! It would be great news for the GOP.
Anyone else is fodder and not even a bump in the road !
If the Post says it's Gephardt, it will be someone else, probably Edwards.
Gephardt may help carry mO
